In music, in the panorama of nature, in dreams at night (as Leopardi himself wrote in his Canto Notturno) it is to something else that man pays homage, from which he expects something: he awaits it. His enthusiasm is for something that music, or everything that is beautiful in this world, has awakened within him. When a person begins to feel this, his soul immediately harks to await the other thing: even in the presence of what he can grasp, he awaits another thing: he grasps what he can grasp, but he awaits a nother thing.

Ah, Holy Jesus Ah, holy Jesus, How hast thou offended, That man to judge thee Hath in hate pretended? By foes derided, By thine own rejected, O most afflicted. Who was the guilty? Who brought this upon thee? Alas, my treason, Jesus, hath undone thee. Twas I, Lord Jesus, I it was denied thee: I crucified thee. Lo, the good Shepherd For the sheep is offered; The slave hath sinnd, And the Son hath suffered; For mans atonement, While he nothing heedeth, God intercedeeth. For me, kind Jesus, Was thine Incarnation, Thy mortal sorrow, And thy lifes oblation; Thy death of anguish And thy bitter Passion For my salvation. Therefore, kind Jesus, Since I cannot pay thee, I do adore thee And will ever pray thee, Think on thy pity And thy love unswerving, Not my deserving. Along the Jordan River

I cannot see their faces and I cannot hear their names, but from back in ancient times many prophets have told of them and I know I will go and see. Along the Jordan River Theres a fascinating Man Now I can look at His eyes And Jesus is His name. Hes telling of His Father, Really you cannot understand, And I know I must stay and see.
C7 G7 C7 D7 C F C D7 G7 C C7 F G F C

Deep inside a fire burns my soul, Warms my heart While a new awareness grows, With out Him I cant understand The things any more, Deep in side I know He is the Lord. Along the streets of my city I met a group of working men, Ive always known their faces And I surely know their names, But something new has happened In their hearts and in their eyes And I know that I must stay and see. Deep inside a fire burns their souls, Warms their hearts while A new awareness grows, Without Him they cant understand The things anymore, Deep inside they know He is the Lord. Along the paths of my life Lots of questions come and go.

Along the Jordan River theres a group of walking men. 14

Sometimes they made me cry Cause I didnt know who to ask why?, But now Ive met the Lord of life, He lives strongly in these men, And I know I must stay and sing. Deep inside a fire burns my soul, Warms my heart While a new awareness grows, Without Him I cant understand The things anymore; Deep inside I know He is the Lord. Amazing Grace

Amazing grace, how sweet the sounds that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now am found was blind but now I see. T was grace that taught my heart to fear and grace my fears relieved; how precious did that grace appear the hour I first believed. Through many dangers, toils and snares, I have already come; tis grace that brought me safe thus far and grace will lead me home. How sweet the name of Jesus sounds in a believers ear. It soothes his sorrows, heals the wounds and drives away his fear. Must Jesus bear the cross alone and all the world go free? No, theres a cross for evry one and theres a cross for me. When weve been there ten thousand years, bright shining as the sun, weve no less days to sing Gods praise. than when we first begun.

Ave Ma ria. Ave Maria. Mother of all of us, Show us Christ, your sweet Son, Whom you have borne For us all in your womb. He was born for every man, To free us all from death for ever And He died for every man, to lead us back to a true life. Ave Maria. Ave Maria.

One and only noble tree! None in foliage, none in blossom, None in fruit thy peer may be; Dearest wood and dearest iron! Dearest weight is hung on thee. Sing, my tongue, the glorious battle, Sing the ending of the fray; Now above the Cross, the trophy, Sound the loud triumphant lay: Tell how Christ, the worlds Redeemer, As a victim won the day. Faithful Cross God in pity saw man fallen, Shamed and sunk in misery, When he fell on death by tasting Fruit of the forbidden tree; Then another tree was chosen Which the world from death should free. Dearest wood Thus the scheme of our salvation Was of old in order laid, That the manifold deceivers Art by art might be outweighed, And the lure the foe put forward Into means of healing made. Faithful Cross Therefore when the appointed fullness Of the holy time was come He was sent who maketh all things Forth from Gods eternal home; Thus He came to earth, incarnate, Offspring of a maidens womb. Dearest wood Hear the helpless baby crying Where the narrow manger stands; See how she, His Virgin Mother, Ties His limbs with slender bands, Swaddling clothes she wraps about Him, And confines Gods feet and hands!

Faithful Cross Thirty years among us dwelling, His appointed time fulfilled, Born for this, He meets His Passion, For that this He freely willed, On the Cross the Lamb is lifted Where his life-blood shall be spilled. Dearest wood . . . He endured the nails, the spitting, Vinegar, and spear, and reed; From that holy Body broken Blood and water forth proceed; Earth, and stars, and sky, and ocean By that flood from stain are freed. Faithful Cross Bend thy boughs, O Tree of Glory Thy relaxing sinews bend; For a while the ancient rigor That thy birth bestowed, suspend; And the King of heavenly beauty On thy bosom gently tend! Dearest wood Thou alone wast counted worthy This worlds ransom to uphold; For a shipwreckd race preparing Harbor, like the Ark of old; With the sacred Blood anointed From the smitten Lamb that rolled. Faithful Cross To the Trinity be glory Everlasting, as is meet; Equal to the Father, equal To the Son, and Paraclete: Trinal Unity, whose praises All created things repeat. Amen. Dearest wood

Flattire Freeway Riro Maniscalco / Richard Veras I dreamed Id seen a green garden In this skyscraper forest that lets nothing new grow The fresh water showers dry weeds into flowers And sprinkles on seedlings unknown I longed just for one true story In this wastepaper playground only tall tales get told Give me news to delight me, and words to invite me To watch the way real life unfolds My hope needs mendin but my need is unbendin My wantin dont ever get cold I cant help wishin while guitar strings keep fishin For a tune that will never get old La la la I looked for another wonder In this highwire circus where no risk is too bold Keep your clowns and your lions, let the trapeze keep flyin But give my heart something to hold Will destiny come to greet me On this flattire freeway where nobody gets home?

Your peace in our hearts, Lord, at the end of the day. Magnificat Mary, as you held your lovely boy babe, Did you gladly welcome the miracle God had made, Wondering as you gazed at Him, King of all Kings, That this helpless child mankind would redeem? My soul magnifies the Lord, My spirit sings His praise; He has look upon His handmaid, And blessed me in all ways, Though my life bring care and sorrow, Ill trust in God above, For He has done great things for me With unending mercy and love. Mary, as He grew, were you burdened by fear? Did you hold your heart when you saw He was nowhere near? Trembling as you heard how He spoke to the scribes, Did you know then He would offer His life? Mary, as you wept burning tears for your son, Did your soul delight at the victory He had won? Mother, will you guide me, help me to understand How my own life changed when God became man? Mary Did You Know Mary did you know that your baby boy would one day walk on water? Mary did you know that your baby boy would save our sons and daughters, did you know that your baby boy has come to make you new and the child that you deliver would soon deliver you?

Mary did you know that your baby boy would give sight to the blind men? Mary did you know that your baby boy would calm a storm with his hand, did you know that your baby boy has walked where angels trod and when you kiss your little boy you have kissed the face of God. The blind will see, the deaf will hear the dead will live again the lame will leap, the dumb will speak the praises of the lamb. Oh Mary did you know that your baby boy is God of all creation? Mary did you know that your baby boy would one day rule the nations, did you know that your baby boy was heavens perfect love and the sleeping child youre holding is the great I am. Marys Son

He made His mothers wonder wide. Did we ever sing of Marys boy Who left His mother worried sick? He had to go to teach the priests. He left his mother worried sick. Did we ever sing of the Son of God Whose mothers face was helpless grief When she saw Him heave the cross again? His mothers face was helpless grief. Did we ever sing of the Risen Lord Who turned his mothers tears to joy? The Child she bore had saved the world! The turned His mothers tears to joy. 23

Way down upon de Swanee ribber, Far, far away, Deres wha my heart is turning ebber, Deres wha de old folks stay. All up and down de whole creation, Sadly I roam, Still longing for de old plantation, And for de old folks at home. All de world am sad and dreary, Ebry where I roam, Oh! darkeys how my heart grows weary, Far from de old folks at home. All round de little farm I wandered When I was young, Den many happy days I squandered, Many de songs I sung. When I was playing wid my brudder Happy was I . Oh! take me to my kind old mudder, Dere let me live and die. All de world am sad and dreary, Ebry where I roam, Oh! darkeys how my heart grows weary, Far from de old folks at home. One little hut among de bushes, One dat I love, Still sadly to my memry rushes, No matter where I rove When will I see de bees a humming All round de comb? When will I hear de banjo tumming Down in my good old home? All de world am sad and dreary, Ebry where I roam, Oh! darkeys how my heart grows weary, Far from de old folks at home.

Yes I do my Lord. Then feed my sheep, feed my sheep Feed my sheep. Yes I will my Lord. Now Simon Peter loved the Lord, though Him he had denied. Filled with shame he could not meet his gentle Masters eye. But Jesus gazed at His friend with mercy so profound, That Peter answered Yes, my Lord! and shared His cross and crown. Then Jesus asked Now we too hear our Saviors voice, calling us to Him. Like Peter, we turn away, silenced by our sin. But we must offer all to Him, and echo Peters yes, For in His mighty, tender love, lies our happiness! 27

Im going there to see my father, Im going there no more to roam, Im only going over Jordan, Im only going over home. I feel my sins are all forgiven, My hopes are stayed on things above, Im going away to yon bright heaven Where all is joy and peace and love. Im going there to meet my brothers, Theyve gone before me one by one, Im only going over Jordan, Im only going over home. I know dark clouds will gather round me, I know my way is rough and steep, But beauteous fields lie just before me, Where souls redeemed their vigils keep. Im going there to meet my Saviour, Im going there to see my Lord, Im only going over Jordan Im only going over home. I want to sing salvations story, In concert with that blood-washed band, I want to wear a crown of glory When I get home to that bright land.

Maria, all of your Sons unfair sufferings Youve borne with humility, Help us Maria, you who forever live in glory Together with your Lord, Help us Prayerful Song Kristi Brown 2001 Now and then a weariness, that I cannot resist, causes me to see my life as so much desperate risk, a beggars tattered wish. At those times my peace is lost, washed away by tears; like a child in the dark I am filled with fear, wanting someone near. So I ask in prayerful song that the One to whom I belong will help me to see all that He promises my life to be, the joy for which I long. Once I thought that following Him would hinder pain and loss; reveling in the Resurrection, I forgot the cost, I denied the Cross. Every day I rebel against the Way He made for me; though my life is but a gift, I clutch it selfishly, thinking to be free. So I ask in prayerful song that the One to whom I belong will help me to be endlessly

attentive to the Mystery, the joy for which I long So I ask in prayerful song that the One to whom I belong will help me to be endlessly attentive to the Mystery, the desire behind the song.

O, how sad and sore distressed Was that mother, highly blessed Of the sole begotten One. 4. Christ above in torment hangs, She beneath beholds the pangs Of her dying, glorious Son. 5. Is there one who would not weep Whelmed in miseries so deep, Christs dear mother to behold? 6. Can the human heart refrain From partaking in her pain, In that mothers pain untold? 7. Bruised, derided, cursed, defiled, She beheld her tender Child All with bloody scourges rent. 8. For the sins of His own nation, Saw Him hang in desolation Till His spirit forth He sent. 9. Let me mingle tears with thee, Mourning Him who mourned for me, All the days that I may live. 10. By the Cross with thee to stay; There with thee to weep and pray, That is all I ask of thee. 11. O thou Mother! Font of Love! Touch my spirit from above; Make my heart with thine accord. 12. Make me feel as thou hast felt; Make my soul to glow and melt With the love of Christ my Lord. 13. Virgin of all virgins blest, Listen to my tard request; Let me share thy grief divine.

14. Let me, to my latest breath, In the body, bear the death Of that dying Son of thine. 15. Holy Mother! pierce me through, In my heart each wound renew Of my Savior crucified. 16. While my body here decays, May my soul thy goodness praise, Safe in paradise with thee. Amen. The Day Thou Gavest Lord Is Ended John Ellerton
G G G G D Em D Em Em Am Em Am D D G D

The day thou gavest, Lord, is ended the darkness falls at thy behest; to thee our morning hymns ascended thy praise shall sanctify our rest. We thank thee that thy church, unsleeping, while earth rolls onward into light, through all the world her watch is keeping, and rests not now by day or night. As over each continent and island the dawn leads on another day, the voice of prayer is never silent, nor dies the strain of praise away. The sun that bids us rest is waking our brethren neath the western sky, and hour by hour fresh lips are making thy wondrous doings heard on high. So be it, Lord; thy throne shall never like earths proud empires, pass away: thy kingdom stands, and grows forever, till all thy creatures own thy sway.

You will save me now. The Forgotten Richard Veras Riro Maniscalco All alone Searching for a human face Losing hope Forgetting what they mean by grace Walking through another day Forgetful feet forget the way Are you my destiny? And are you really here with me? I remember seeing you with clarity I forget as much again, and more Can you throw this dog a scrap of charity? as he tries to remember. You approach, wearing a suspicious mask I pass by, too afraid to even ask Pretending I can walk alone while memry cuts me to the bone I wish I could forget, and hope you keep reminding me. Do I ignore the need and let it be? but my heart wont go away Can you jog a former lepers memory? cause I need to remember Will you be a stumbling block along my way? Or will I walk into myself? Can you teach a dumb apostle how to pray? Im trying to remember Help me to remember who I am Help me to remember that You Are. The Morn Dawns Refulgent with Glory The morn dawns refulgent with glory, the heavens are vested in song, the earth echoes forth hymns of gladness

In the deepest sea of silence Just a single voice was heard In a night without an end There was only a spark of light Where nothing had been present before.
Am G Am G F Dm C E E E7 Dm C E

Already You had written My name among the stars Already You had planned My life entwined with Yours You had al ready written of me. And then when from Your mind The stars began to shine, And then when from Your hands The earth was born in time, Where nothing had been present before. Already You had written And then when You had stretched The vastness of the sky, And on it You had painted The rainbows and the clouds, Where nothing had been present before. Already You had written And then when You had carved The valleys and the hills, And then when You had drawn The path of every man; I know You did it also for me. I did not know my longing, Till I encountered You, I see what freedom is; Your plan prepared for me. 32

to Christ, who has risen from dath. Deaths power is vanquished by life, and sin has been washed clean by love, and Christ in His glorious splendor illumines the advent of morning. The darkness of night has now broken, the morn comes resplendent with light; Our souls overflowing with joy rejoice that in Him we are brothers. May Christ show Himself in his glory to us, as unto Mary Magdalen, Hell come and call each one by name, the Lord who was dead, but is risen. Retrn, O Lord, to our path, Your words set ablaze in our hearts; Once more in the bread that is broken Your risen face will be revaled. When into one body we gather, a new Guest appears in our midst; our faith, may He strengthen anew, revealing his glorious wonds. This day of our Easter rejoicing, our innocence he will renew. All glory to Christ, our Redeemer, To Father and Spirit forever. Amen. The Mystery Il mistero (p. 220) He who welcomes in his heart The will of my Father Will be to me a brother A brother, a sister, and mother. With all simplicity I long to witness The Mystry showing itself in my life, There where a new dawn is born in the depth Of an existence called forth by Your love. You knew me even before I existed You shaped my flesh in the womb of a woman Talked to my heart since ages eternal

To teach me how to hearken Your voice. Looking at fields and observing the heavens, I see a seed that has fallen to earth. I hear creation quiver and tremble Meanwhile Your kingdom is already here. If I can still see a person who suffers While the whole world is erupting in strife, I will know this suffering is only a labor, Birth of a new man created for life. The River Is Here Andy Park
A A A A E E E E B B B B E E E E

Down the mountain the river flows And it brings re freshing wherever it goes. Through the valleys and over the fields The river is rushing and the river is here.
E E E A E B A B A E E E E

The river of God sets our feet a-dancing The river of God fills our hearts with cheer The river of God fills our mouth with laughter And we rejoice for the river is here. The river of God is teeming with life, And all who touch it can be revived, And those who linger on this rivers shore, Will come back thirsting for more of the Lord The river of God So up the mountain we love to go, To find the presence of the Lord, Along the banks of the river we run, We dance with laughter, giving praise to the Son.

With the wind in the willows and the birds in the sky, we have bright sun to w arm us wherever we lie. We have bread and fishes and a jug of red wine to share on your journey with all of man kind. I sat down beside them, the flowrs all around, and we ate on a mantle spread out on the ground. They told me of prophets and princes and kings, and they spoke of the one God who knows everything. With the wind in the willows I asked them to tell me their name and their race, so I might remember their kindness and grace. My name is Joseph, this is Mary my wife and this is our young son, our pride and delight. With the wind in the willows We travelled the whole world by land and by sea, to tell all the people how they can be free.

Em C Bm Am Em Bm Am G Am Em Em Em

Where charity and love pre vail, There God is ever found; Brought heretogether by Christs love By love are we thus bound. With grateful joy and holy fear His charity we learn; Let us with heart and mind and soul Now love Him in return. Forgive we now each others faults As we our faults confess; And let us love each other well In Christian holiness. Let strife among us be unknown, Let all contention cease;

Be His the glory that we seek, Be ours His holy peace. Let us recall that in our midst Dwells Gods begotten Son; As members of His body joined, We are in Him made one. Witness Oh Lord, what manner of man is this? All nations in him are blessed, all things are done by his will, he spoke to the sea and the sea stood still. Now aint that a witness for my Lord? Aint that a witness for my Lord? Aint that a witness for my Lord? My soul is a witness for the Lord. Now there was a man of the Pharisees, his name was Nicodemus and he didnt believe. The same came to Christ by night, wanted to be taught out of human sight. Nicodemus was a man who desired to know how a man can be born when he is old. Christ told Nicodemus, as a friend: Man, you must be born again. He said: Marvel not, man, if you wanna be wise, repent, believe, and be baptized. Then youll be a witness for my Lord, youll be a witness for my Lord, youll be a witness for my Lord. My soul is a witness for the Lord. Well, you read about Samson, from his birth, the strongest man that ever lived on earth. Way back yonder in the ancient times he killed ten thousand of the Philistines. Then old Samson went wanderin about Samsons strength was never found out.

Till his wife sat upon his knees, she said: Tell me where your strength lies, if you please. Now Samsons wife, she talked so fair, Samson said: Cut off my hair. Shave my head just as a clean as your hand and my strength will become like a natural man. Old Samson was a witness for my Lord, Samson was a witness for my Lord, Samson was a witness for my Lord. My soul is a witness for my Lord. Theres another witness, now theres another witness, theres another witness: my soul is a witness for my Lord, my soul is a witness for my Lord. Wondrous Love

Brightest and best of the sons of the morning, Dawn on our darkness and lend us Thine aid; Star of the East, the horizon adorning, Guide where our infant Re deemer is laid. Cold on His cradle the dewdrops are shining; Low lies His head with the beasts of the stall; Angels adore Him in slumber reclining, Maker and Monarch and Savior of all! Say, shall we yield Him, in costly devotion, Odors of Edom and offerings divine? Gems of the mountain and pearls of the ocean, Myrrh from the forest, or gold from the mine? Vainly we offer each ample oblation, Vainly with gifts would His favor secure; Richer by far is the hearts adoration, Dearer to God are the prayers of the poor. Caroling, Caroling

And unto certain shepherds Brought tidings of the same, How that in Bethlehem was born The Son of God by name: O tidings Fear not, then said the angel, Let nothing ye affright, This day is born a Savior, Of virtue, power, and might; So frequently to vanquish all The friends of Satan quite; O tidings The shepherds at those tidings Rejoiced much in mind, And left their flocks a-feeding, In tempest, storm, and wind, And went to Bethlehem straightway This blessed babe to find: O tidings But when to Bethlehem they came, Whereat this infant lay They found him in a manger, Where oxen feed on hay; His mother Mary kneeling, Unto the Lord did pray:

Bring me flesh and bring me wine, Bring me pine logs hither; Thou and I will see him dine, When we bear them thither. Page and monarch, forth they went, Forth they went together Through the rude winds wild lament, And the bitter weather. Sire, the night is darker now, And the wind blows stronger; 57

Fails my heart, I know not how; I can go no longer. Mark my footsteps my good page, Tread thou in them boldly: Thou shalt find the winters rage, Freeze thy blood less coldly.

Quel pomeriggio, quel pomeriggio, Avevamo lavorato. Le pecore nellerba erano bianche, Come nuvole bianche in mezzo al cielo, Era freddo nellaria e nel silenzio, Era calda la voce dei compagni. Io mi ricordo, io mi ricordo era un giorno come un altro, E quella sera, e quella sera, eravamo molto stanchi. Eravamo distesi attorno al fuoco, A pensare alle mogli ed ai figlioli, Il pi vecchio canta va le preghiere, E lantica promessa dei profeti. Io mi ricordo, io mi ricordo era un giorno come un altro, E nella notte, e nella notte, eravamo addormentati, E ciascuno nel sonno ud una voce, Che diceva svegliatevi pastori, E splendevano i campi per la luce, Che splendeva nel cielo e su di noi, E poi langelo disse dove andare, E fu breve la strada per Betlemme, E trovammo la stalla ed il bambino, Che piangeva di freddo ed era dio.

Ich komme, bring und schenke dir, was du mir hast gegeben. Nimm hin, es ist mein Geist und Sinn, Herz, Seel und Mut, nimm alles hin und la dirs wohlgefal len. 2. Da ich noch nicht geboren war, da bist du mir geboren und hast mich dir zu eigen gar, eh ich dich kannt, erkoren. Eh ich durch deine Hand gemacht, da hast du schon bei dir bedacht, wie du mein wolltest werden. 4. Ich sehe dich mit Freuden an und kann mich nicht satt sehen; und weil ich nun nichts weiter kann, bleib ich anbetend stehen. O da mein Sinn ein Abgrund wr und meine Seel ein weites Meer, da ich dich mchte fassen!

They bended on hovring wing, And ever oer its Babel sounds The blessed angels sing. And ye, beneath lifes crushing load, Whose forms are bending low, Who toil a long the climbing way With weary steps and slow, Look up! For glad and golden hours Come swiftly on the wing O rest beside the weary road And hear the angels sing. For lo, the days are hastning on, By prophets bards foretold When with the ever circling years Comes round the Age of Gold, When peace shall over all the earth Its ancient splendors fling And all the world give back the song Which now the angels sing.

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming, With glowing heart by His cradle we stand So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming, Here came the wise men from the Orient land. The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger, In all our trials, born to be our friend. He knows our need, He guardeth us from danger; Behold your King! Before the lowly bend! Behold your King! Before the lowly bend! Truly He taught us to love one another; His law is love and His gospel is peace; Chains shall he break, for the slave is our brother, And in his name, all oppression cease. With hymns of joy in grateful chorus raising, Let every heart adore his Holy Name! Christ is the Lord! With saint and seraph praising, His power and glory proclaim! His power and glory proclaim! O Little Town of Bethlehem

The praises sing to God the king, And peace to men on earth. How silently, how silently, The wondrous gift is givn! So God imparts to human hearts The blessings of his heavn. No ear may hear his coming, But in the world of sin, Where meek souls will receive Him still The dear Christ enters in. O holy child of Bethlehem, Descend to us we pray Cast out our sin and enter in, Be born in us today. We hear the Christmas angels The great glad tidings tell O come to us, abide with us, Our Lord Emmanuel. Personent Personent hodie Voces puerulae Laudantes jucunde Qui nobis est natus. Summo Deo datus. Ideo, ideo Ideo gloria, in excelsis Deo. On this day, earth shall ring With the song children sing To the Lord, to our King Born on earth to save us; Him the Father gave us. Ideo His the doom, ours the mirth; When He came, down to earth Bethlehem saw His birth; Ox and ass beside Him. From the cold would hide Him.

O little town of Bethlehem, How still we see thee lie! Above thy deep and dreamless sleep, The silent stars go by Yet in thy dark streets shineth The ever lasting light The hopes and fears of all the years Are met in thee to night. For Christ is born of Mary, And gathered all above, While mortals sleep, the angels keep Their watch of wondring love. O morning stars together, Proclaim the holy birth,

No el N oel No el No el Born is the King of Israel They looked up and saw a star Shining in the east beyond them far And to the earth it gave great light And so it continued both day and night. Noel And by the light of that same star Three wise men came from country far; To seek for a king was their intent, And to follow the star wherever it went. Noel This star drew nigh to the northwest Oer Bethlehem it took its rest And there it did both stop and stay Right oer the place where Jesus lay.

I brought Him a gift in the Wise Mens pack. I, said the camel, yellow and black. Thus every beast by some good spell In the stable dark was glad to tell Of the gift he gave Emmanuel, The gift he gave Emmanuel. The King Shall Come when Morning Dawns The King shall come when morning dawns, And light triumphant breaks; When beauty gilds the eastern hills, And life to joy awakes. Not as of old a little child To bear, and fight, and die, But crowned with glory like the sun That lights the morning sky. O brighter than the rising morn When He, victorious, rose, And left the lonesome place of death, Despite the rage of foes. O brighter than that glorious morn Shall this fair morning be, When Christ, our King, in beauty comes, And we His face shall see. The King shall come when morning dawns, And earths dark night is past; O haste the rising of that morn, The day that aye shall last. And let the endless bliss begin, By weary saints foretold, When right shall triumph over wrong, And truth shall be extolled. The King shall come when morning dawns, And light and beauty brings: Hail, Christ the Lord! Thy people pray, Come quickly, King of kings.

Jesus our brother, kind and good Was humbly born in a stable rude And the friendly beasts ar ound Him stood Jesus our brother, kind and good. I, said the donkey, shaggy and brown, I carried His mother up hill and down; I carried her safely to Bethlehem town. I, said the donkey, shaggy and brown. I, said the cow, all white and red I gave Him my manger for a bed; I gave Him my hay to pillow His head. I, said the cow, all white and red. I, said the sheep with curly horn, I gave Him my wool for His blanket warm; He wore my coat on Christmas morn. I, said the sheep with curly horn. I, said the dove from the rafters high, Cooed Him to sleep that He should not cry; We cooed Him to sleep, my mate and I. I, said the dove from the rafters high. I, said the camel, yellow and black, Over the desert, upon my back,

The King of all creation, Came he to a world forlorn, The Lord of every nation. Cradled in a stall was he With sleepy cows and asses; But the very beasts could see That He all men surpasses.

So bring Him incense, gold, and myrrh, Come rich and poor to own Him; The king of kings salvation brings, Let loving hearts enthrone Him. Raise, raise the song on high, The Virgin sings her lullaby, Joy, joy for Christ is born, The babe, the son of Mary. When Christ, the Son of Mary Quanno nascette Ninno (p. 68) When Christ, the Son of Mary, In Bethlehem was born, Twas night, and yet the light Was bright as summers morn! Stars were gleaming, brightly beaming Oer the town of Bethlehem; A brighter star there shone For magi far, a guiding star That led them on. When Christ, the Son of Mary, Within her arms was laid, The lion with the lamb, The bear with fatling strayed. Close to the shepherd wandered the leopard, Every creature was at peace; The great and small were one; For calf or lamb that night no fright, But joy, did come. When Christ, the Son of Mary, Within the crib did lie, There came to shepherds drowsy A voice which sang on high: Peace on the earth is come with this birth; Go, seek the Babe in yonder stall, Your King, though weak and small; The worlds true light is come this night To save you all.

Nails, nails, shall pierce Him through, The cross be borne for me, for you Hail, hail, the word made flesh, The babe, the son of Mary.

That music used to make me smile. And I knew if I had my chance, That I could make those people dance,

Singing this will be the day that I die this will be the day that I die Now for ten years weve been on our own And moss grows fat on a rolling stone But thats not how it used to be When the jester sang for the king and queen In a coat he borrowed from James Dean In a voice that came from you and me And while the King was looking down The jester stole his thorny crown The courtroom was adjourned No verdict was returned While Lennon read the book of Marx The quartet kept practice in the park And we sang dirges in the dark The day the music died We were singin Bye, bye miss American Pie Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry And good ol boys were drinking whisky and rye? Singing this will be the day that I die this will be the day that I die Helter Skelter in a summer swelter The birds flew off with the fallout shelter Eight miles high and falling fast It landed foul on the grass 83

Singing this will be the day that I die this will be the day that I die Did you write the book of love And do you have faith in God above If the Bible tells you so Do you believe in rock n roll Can music save your mortal soul Then you can teach me to dance real slow Well I know that youre in love with him Cause I saw you dancing in the gym You both kicked off your shoes

The players tried for a forward pass With the jester on the sidelines in a cast Now the halftime air was sweet perfume While sergeants played a marching tune We all got up to dance Oh, but we never got the chance Cause the players tried to take the field, The marching band refused to yield. Do you recall what was revealed, The day the music died? We started singing Bye, bye miss American Pie Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry And good ol boys were drinking whisky and rye? Singing this will be the day that I die this will be the day that I die There we were all in one place A generation lost in space With no time left to start again So come on Jack be nimble, Jack be quick Jack Flash sat on a candle stick Cause fire is the devils only friend. As I watched him on the stage My hands were clenched in fists of rage No angel born in hell Could break that satans spell And as flames climbed high into the night To light the sacrificial rite I saw satan laughing with delight the day the music died. I met a girl who sang the blues And I asked her for some happy news But she just smiled and turned away I went down to the sacred store Where Id heard the music years before But the man there said the music wouldnt play

And in the streets the children screamed The lovers cried and the poets dreamed But not a word was spoken The church bells all were broken And the three men I admire most The Father Son and Holy Ghost They caught the last train for the coast The day the music died They were singin Bye, bye miss American Pie Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry And good ol boys were drinking whisky and rye? Singing this will be the day that I die this will be the day that I die American Tune Paul Simon 1973

In the town of Springhill, Nova Scotia, Late in the year of fifty-eight, Day still comes and the sun still shines, But its dark as the grave in the Cumberland mine. Dark as the grave in the Cumberland mine. Down at the coal face, miners working, Rattle of the belt and the cutters blade Rumble of rock and the walls close round The living and the dead men two miles down.

Battle Cry of Freedom


D G D7

In return for grace Its a beautiful day Sky falls, you feel like Its a beautiful day Dont let it get away Youre on the road But youve got no destination Youre in the mud In the maze of her imagination You love this town Even if that doesnt ring true Youve been all over And its been all over you Its a beautiful day Dont let it get away Its a beautiful day Touch me Take me to that other place Teach me I know Im not a hopeless case See the world in green and blue See China right in front of you See the canyons broken by cloud See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out See the Bedouin fires at night See the oil fields at first light And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth After the flood all the colors came out It was a beautiful day Dont let it get away Beautiful day Touch me Take me to that other place Reach me I know Im not a hopeless case What you dont have you dont need it now What you dont know you can feel it somehow What you dont have you dont need it now

Yes, well rally round the flag, boys, Well rally once again,

shouting the battle cry of freedom we will rally from the hillside, well gather from the plain,

Down with the traitor, up with the star While we rally round the flag, boys, rally once again,

shouting the battle cry of freedom. We are springing to the call of our brothers gone before, shouting the battle cry of freedom; and well fill the vacant ranks with a million free-men more We will welcome to our numbers the loyal, true and brave and although they may be poor nor a man shall be a slave Beautiful day The heart is a bloom Shoots up through the stony ground Theres no room No space to rent in this town Youre out of luck And the reason that you had to care The traffic is stuck And youre not moving anywhere You thought youd found a friend To take you out of this place Someone you could lend a hand 90

Dont need it now Was a beautiful day Blackbird Beatles 1968 Blackbird singing in the dead of night, Take these broken wings and learn to fly All your life, You were only waiting for this moment to arise Blackbird singing in the dead of night, Take these sunken eyes and learn to see All your life, You were only waiting for this moment to be free Blackbird fly, Into the light of a dark, black night Blackbird fly, blackbird fly, Into the light of a dark, black night Blackbird singing in the dead of night, Take these broken wings and learn to fly All your life, You were only waiting for this moment to arise You were only waiting for this moment to arise You were only waiting for this moment to arise Blowin in the Wind Bob Dylan 1962

The prison band was there and they began to wail. The band was jumpin and the joint began to swing. You should ve heard those knocked out jailbirds sing. Lets rock, everybody, lets rock. Everybody in the whole cell block Was a dancin to the Jailhouse Rock. Spider Murphy played the tenor saxophone, Little Joe was blowin on the slide trombone. The drummer boy from Illinois went crash, boom, bang, the whole rhythm section was the Purple Gang. Lets rock Number forty-seven said to number three: Youre the cutest jailbird I ever did see. I sure would be delighted with your company, come on and do the Jailhouse Rock with me. Lets rock The sad sack was a sittin on a block of stone way over in the corner weepin all alone. The warden said, Hey, buddy, dont you be no square. If you cant find a partner use a wooden chair. Lets rock Shifty Henry said to Bugs, For Heavens

sake, no one s lookin , now s our chance to make a break. Bugsy turned to Shifty and he said, Nix nix, I wanna stick around a while and get my kicks. Lets rock Jamaica Farewell

Down the way where the nights are gay And the sun shines daily on the mountaintop I took a trip on a sailing ship
G F C

And when I reached Ja maica I made a stop. But Im sad to say Im on my way, Wont be back for many a day. My heart is down, my head is turning around I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town. Sounds of laughter everywhere And the dancing ladies swing to and fro. I must declare my heart is there, Though Ive been from Maine to Mexico. But Im sad to say Down at the market you can hear Ladies cry while on there heads they bear. Akey rice, salt fish are nice, And the rum is fine any time of the year. But Im sad to say Johnny B. Goode Chuck Berry Deep down in Louisiana close to New Orleans, way back up in the woods among the evergreens, there stand a country cabin made of clay and wood, where lives a young country boy 117

named Johnny B. Goode, he never ever learned to read or write a book so well, but he could play his guitar just like a-ringing a bell. Go go, go Johnny go go go! Go Johnny go go go! Go Johnny go go go! Go Johnny go go go! aah Johnny B. Goode! He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack, sit beneath the trees by the railroad track. Oh sitting and a-playing in the shade, drumming to the rhythm that the drivers made. People passing by used to stop and say: my oh my, that country boy can play. Go go, go Johnny go go go! Well his mama told him: someday you will be a man. And you will be the leader of a big old band. Many people coming from miles around, to hear you play your music till the sun goes down. Maybe some day your name will be in light, saying: Johnny B. Goode tonight! Go go, go Johnny go go go! Keep on the Sunny Side Theres a dark and a troubled side of life, Theres a bright and a sunny side, too; Though you meet with the darkness and strife, The sunny side you also may view. 118

Keep on the sunny side, Always on the sunny side: Keep on the sunny side of life! It will help us every day, It will brighten all the way, If well keep on the sunny side of life! Though the storm and its furies rage today, Crushing hope that we cherish so dear, The cloud and storm will in time pass away, And the sun again will shine bright and clear. Keep on the sunny side Let us greet with a song of hope each day, Though the moment be cloudy or fair, And let us trust in our Savior always: Hell keep us everyone in His care. Keep on the sunny side Knockin on Heavens Door Bob Dylan

We passed that summer lost in love beneath the lemon tree the music of her laughter hid my fathers words from me: Lemon Tree very pretty One day she left without a word. She took away the sun. And in the dark she left behind, I knew what she had done. Shed left me for another, its a common tale but true. A sadder man but wiser now I sing these words to you: Lemon Tree very pretty Let it Be

Dont put your faith in love, my boy, my father said to me, I fear you'll find that love is like the lovely Lemon Tree. Lemon Tree very pretty and the lemon flower is but the fruit of the poor is impossible to eat.

One day beneath the Lemon Tree, my love and I did lie A girl so sweet that when she smiled the stars rose in the sky.

I wake up to the sound of music Mother Mary comes to me speaking words of wisdom, let it be. Let it be (4x) there will be an answer, let it be. Let it be (4x) whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

Dance, then, wherever I danced on the Sabbath and I cured the lame, the holy people said it was a shame, they whipped and they stripped and they hung me high and they left me there on a Cross to die. Dance, then, wherever I danced on a Friday when the sky turned black, its hard to dance with the world on your back, they buried my body and they thought Id gone but I am the dance and I still go on. Dance, then, wherever They cut me down and I leapt up high: I am the life thatll never, never die, Ill live in you if you live in me, I am the Lord of the dance, said he.

Thats how they are, so I grabbed out the car, Convertible fifty-nine. Headed for the freeway; Tried to find the Pasadena sign. Ten miles and three quarters more I wasnt feeling any more alive. Cause with fifteen kids I used to be a minstrel free With a whole lot of bread in my bag. I used to feel that my life was real, But the good Lord threw me a snag. Now Im gonna be the same as me, No matter how I try. Cause with fifteen kids Turned round the car and headed for home; I guess I realized my fate.

MTA Song Now let me tell you of a story Bout a man named Charlie On that tragic and fateful day; He put ten cents in his pocket, Kissed his wife and family, Went to ride on the MTA. But did he ever return? No, he never returned, And his fate is still unlearned, He may ride forever neath the streets of Boston Hes the man who never returned. Charlie handed in his dime At the Kendall Square Station And he changed Jamaica Plain; When he got there the conductor told him one more nickel! Charlie couldnt get off that train. But did he ever return Now all night long Charlie Rides through the tunnel Crying, What will become of me? How can I afford to see My sister in Chelsea Or my cousin in Roxbury? But did he ever return Charlies wife goes down to the Scollay Square Station Everyday at a quarter past two And through the open window She hands Charlie a sandwich As the train comes rumblin through! But did he ever return Now you citizens of Boston, Dont you think that its a scandal The way people have to pay and pay; Fight the fare increase, Vote for George OBrien

And get Charlie off the MTA! But did he ever return Mull of Kintyre Paul und Linda McCartney 1977

for my head is bending low I hear their gentle voices calling: Old black Joe! Why do I weep, when my heart should feel no pain, why do I sigh that my friends come not again? Grieving for forms now departed long ago, I hear their gentle voices calling: Old black Joe! Im coming, 133

Where are the hearts once so happy and so free? The children so dear that I held upon my knees? Gone to the shore where my soul has longed to go, I hear their gentle voices calling: Old black Joe! Im coming Old Folks at Home Stephen C. Foster (1851) Way down upon de Swanee ribber, Far, far away, Deres wha my heart is turning ebber, Deres wha de old folks stay. All up and down de whole creation, Sadly I roam, Still longing for de old plantation, And for de old folks at home. All de world am sad and dreary, Ebry where I roam, Oh! darkeys how my heart grows weary, Far from de old folks at home. All round de little farm I wandered When I was young, Den many happy days I squandered, Many de songs I sung. When I was playing wid my brudder Happy was I . Oh! take me to my kind old mudder, Dere let me live and die. All de world am sad and dreary, Ebry where I roam, Oh! darkeys how my heart grows weary, Far from de old folks at home. One little hut among de bushes, One dat I love, Still sadly to my memry rushes, No matter where I rove When will I see de bees a humming All round de comb? When will I hear de banjo tumming 134

Down in my good old home? All de world am sad and dreary, Ebry where I roam, Oh! darkeys how my heart grows weary, Far from de old folks at home. One U2

I see a red door and I want it painted black, No colors anymore I want them to turn black. I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes, I have to turn my head until my darkness goes.

In eighteen hundred and forty-two I left the old world for the new, Bad cess to the luck that brought me through To work upon the railway. Fil-i-me-or-y-or-y-ay (3x) To work upon the railway. Our contractors name it was Tom King, He kept a store to rob the men, A Yankee clerk with ink and pen, To cheat Pat on the railway. Fil-i-me-or-y-or-y-ay (3x) To cheat Pat on the railway. Its Pat, do this, and Pat, do that! Without a stocking or a hat, And nothing but an old cravat, While Pat works on the railway. Fil-i-me-or-y-or-y-ay (3x) While Pat works on the railway. One Monday morning to our surprise, Just half an hour before sunrise, The dirty devil went to the skies, And Pat worked on the railway. Fil-i-me-or-y-or-y-ay (3x) And Pat worked on the railway.

Pirate ships would lowr their flag when Puff roared out his name. Puff, the magic dragon A dragon lives forever, but not so little boys Painted wings and giant rings make way for other toys One grey night it happened, Jackie Paper came no more, And Puff that mighty dragon, he ceased his fearless roar.

Yipie-i- yay, yip-i-oh -oh Ghost riders in the sky. Their brands were still on fire And their hoofs were made of steel Their horns were black and shiny And their hot breath he could feel A bolt of fear went through him As they thundered through the sky For as he saw the riders coming hard, He could hear their mournful cry. Yipie-i-yay, yip-i-oh-oh Their face was gaunt, their eyes were blurred, Their shirts all soaked with sweat, Theyre riding hard to catch that herd, But they aint caught him yet Theyve got to ride for evermore On the range up in the sky On horses snorting fire As they ride, I hear them cry. Yipie-i-yay, yip-i-oh-oh And as the riders loped on by He heard one call his name If you want to save your soul from hell A-ridin on the range Then cowboy better change your ways Or with us you will ride Trying to catch the devils herd Across the endless sky. Yipie-i-yay, yip-i-oh-oh

From this valley they say you are going We will miss your bright eyes and sweet smile For they say you are taking the sunshine, Which has brightened our pathway a while. Come and sit by my side if you love me, Do not hasten to bid me adieu But remember the Red River Valley And the one who has loved you so true Wont you think of the valley youre leaving, O how lonely, how sad it will be? O think of the fond heart youre breaking And the grief you are causing to me. Come and sit by my side As you go to your home by the ocean, May you never forget those sweet hours That we spent in the Red River Valley And the love we exchanged mid the flowers Come and sit by my side Riders

Streets of Laredo As I walked out in the streets of Laredo, As I walked out in Laredo one day, I spied a poor cowboy all wrapped in white linen, All wrapped in white linen, as cold as the clay. I see by your outfit that you are a cowboy. These words he did say as I boldly stepped by, Come sit down beside me and hear my sad story, I was shot in the breast and I know I must die. Get six jolly cowboys to carry my coffin, Get six pretty maidens to carry my pall; Put bunches of roses all over my coffin Roses to deaden the clods as they fall. Oh, beat the drum slowly and play the fife lowly Play the dead march as you carry me along; Take me to the green valley and lay the sod oer me, For Im a young cowboy and I know Ive done wrong. We beat the drum slowly and played the fife lowly and bitterly wept as we bore him along; For we all loved our comrade, so brave, young and handsome, We all loved our comrade, although hed done wrong.

So how can you tell me youre lonely and say for you that the sun dont shine? Let me take you by the hand, and lead you through the streets of London: Ill show you something to make you change your mind. Have you seen the old girl who walks the streets of London, dirt in her hair and her clothes in rags? She s no time for talkin, she just keeps right on walkin, Carrying her home in two carrier bags. So how can you tell me In the all-night cafe at a quarter past eleven, same old man sitting there on his own, looking at the world over the rim of his tea cup, 149

and each tea last an hour, and he wanders home alone. So how can you tell me Have you seen the old man outside the seamans mission, memory fading with the medal ribbons that he wears? And in our winter city the rain cries a little pity For one more forgotten hero and a world that doesnt care. So how can you tell me Stuck in a Moment Im not afraid of anything in this world Theres nothing you can throw at me that I havent already heard Im just trying to find a decent melody A song that I can sing in my own company I never thought you were a fool But darling, look at you You gotta stand up straight, carry your own weight These tears are going nowhere, baby Youve got to get yourself together Youve got stuck in a moment and now you cant get out of it Dont say that later will be better now youre stuck in a moment And you cant get out of it I will not forsake, the colors that you bring But the nights you filled with fireworks They left you with nothing I am still enchanted by the light you brought to me I listen through your ears, and through your eyes I can see And you are such a fool To worry like you do I know its tough, and you can never get enough 150

Of what you dont really need now my oh my Youve got to get yourself together I was unconscious, half asleep The water is warm till you discover how deep I wasnt jumping for me it was a fall Its a long way down to nothing at all Youve got to get yourself together And if the night runs over And if the day wont last And if our way should falter Along the stony pass And if the night runs over And if the day wont last And if your way should falter Along the stony pass Its just a moment This time will pass Summertime G.

Sweet Home Alabama


D C G

Sweet Baby James James Taylor There is a young cowboy, he lives on the range His horse and his cattle are his only companions He works in the saddle and he sleeps in the canyons Waiting for summer his pastures to change. As the moon rises he sits by the fire Thinkin about women and glasses of beer And closing his eyes as the doggies retire Sings out a song which is soft but its clear As if maybe someone could hear: Goodnight you moonlight ladies Rockabye Sweet Baby James Deep greens and blues are the colors I choose Wont you let me go down in my dreams And rockabye Sweet Baby James. The first of December was covered with snow And so was the turnpike from Stockbridge to Boston The Berkshires seemed dreamlike on account of that frosting 10 miles behind and 10,000 more to go. Theres a song that they sing when they take to the highway A song that they sing when they take to the sea A song that they sing of their home in the sky Maybe you can believe it if it helps you to sleep But singing works just fine for me.

E A B A E E

In restless dreams I walked alone Narrow streets of cobblestone Neath the halo of a streetlamp, I turned my collar to the cold and damp When my eyes where stabbed by the flash of a neon light That split the night And touched the sounds of silence. And in the naked light I saw Ten thousand people, maybe more People talking without speaking, People hearing without listening, People writing songs that voices never share And no one dare Disturb the sounds of silence. Fools!, said I, you do not know Silence like a cancer grows Hear my words that I might teach you Take my arms that I might reach you But my words like silent rain-drops fell And echoed in the wells of silence. And the people bowed and prayed To the neon god they made And the sign flashed its warning In the words that it was forming And the signs said The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls And tenement halls And whispered in the sounds of silence.

Come writers and critics who prophesize with your pen And keep your eyes wide, the chance wont come again. And dont speak too soon for the wheels still in spin And theres no telling who that its naming For the loser now will be later to win For the times they are a-changin. Come senators, congressmen, please heed the call, Dont stand in the doorway, dont block up the hall. For he that gets hurt will be he who has stalled. Theres a battle outside, its raging. Itll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls For the times they are a-changin. Come mothers and fathers throughout the land And dont criticize what you cant understand. Your sons and your daughters are beyond your command. Your old road is rapidly aging. Please get out of the new one if you cant lend your hand For the times they are a-changin. The line it is drawn, the curse it is cast. The slow one now will later be fast As the present now will later be past. The order is rapidly fading. And the first one now will later be last For the times they are a-changin. The Water is Wide

Weve gotta go home Wake up a little Susie, wake up Wake up a little Susie, wake up The movie wasnt so hot It didnt have much of a plot We fell asleep, our goose is cooked Our reputation is shot Wakeup a little Susie Wakeup a little Susie Well what are we going to tell your mama Walkin after Midnight I go out walkin, after midnight Out in the moonlight, just like we used to do Im always walkin, after midnight Searching for you.

W ake up little Susie, wake up


D

W ake up little Susie, wake up


G D D D G G G D

Weve both been sound a sleep Wake up little Susie and weep The movies over its four oclock 162

I walk for miles, along the highway Well thats just my way of saying I love you Im always walkin, after midnight Searching for you. I stop to see a weeping willow Cryin on his pillow Maybe hes cryin for me? And as the skies turn gloomy, Night winds whisper to me Im lonesome as I can be. I go out walkin, after midnight Out in the moonlight, just hopin you may be Somewhere a-walkin, after midnight Searching for me. I stop to see I go out walkin, after midnight Out in the moonlight, just hopin you may be Somewhere a-walkin, after midnight Searching for me. Was a Sunny Day Paul Simon Was a sunny day Not a cloud was in the sky Not a negative word was heard From the people passing by Was a sunny day All the birdies in the trees And the radios singing song All the favorite melodies He was a navy man Stationed in Newport News |: She was a highschool queen With nothing left to lose. :| Was a sunny day Her name was Lorelei She was his only girl |: She called him Speedoo But his Christian name was Mister Earl :|

The hour that the ship comes in. Oh the seas will split and the ship will hit And the sand on the shoreline will be shakin And the tide will sound and the waves will pound
E A B E

I could stay with you. I could be handy, mending a fuse when your lights have gone. You can knit a sweater by the fireside, Sunday morning go for a ride. Doing the garden, digging the weeds, who could ask for more? Will you still need me, will you still feed me when Im sixty-four?
Em

And the mornin will be brea kin ! Oh the fishes will laugh as they swim out of the path And the seagulls, theyll be smilin And the rocks on the sand will proudly stand The hour that the ship comes in. And the words that are used for to get the ship confused Will not be understood as theyre spoken For the chains of the sea will have busted in the night And be buried on the bottom of the ocean. Oh a song will lift as the mainsail shifts And the boat drifts onto the shoreline

And the sun will respect every face on the deck The hour that the ship comes in. And the sands will roll out a carpet of gold For your weary toes to be a touchin And the ships wise men will remind you once again That the whole wide world is watchin! Oh the foes will rise with the sleep still in their eyes And theyll jerk from their beds and think theyre dreamin But theyll pinch themselves and squeal and theyll know that its for real The hour that the ship comes in.

And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts, hot ashes for trees, hot air for a cool breeze, cold comfort for change, did you exchange to walk in a part of the war for a lead role in a cage. How I wish how I wish you were here, were just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl year after year running over that same old ground, what have we found same old fears wish you were here.

Shady Grove Wish I had a needle and thread, fine as I could sew, Id sew my gal to my coat-tails and down the road Id go. Shady Grove Some come here to fiddle and dance, some come here to tarry, Some come here to fiddle and dance, but I come here to marry. Shady Grove

I drink to the death of her manhood those men whod rather have died than to live in the cold chains of bondage to bring back their rights where denied. Oh, where are you now when we need you?

How sweet is life, but were crying, how mellow the wine, but its dry, how flagrant the rose, but its dying, how gentle the wind, but it sighs. What good is in youth when its ageing? What joy is in eyes that cant see, when theres sorrow in sunshine and flowers and still only our rivers run free.

a gentleman claimed his jewellery, and the case against us was clear. Seven long years transportation, right down to Van Diemans Land. Far away from my friends and companions, betrayed by the black velvet band. The Foggy Dew Peadar ODonnell 1916 (Capo: 2nd Fret)

As down the glen one Easter morn, to a city fair rode I there armed lines of marching men in squadrons passed me by. No pipes did hum, no battle drum did sound its dread tat too but the Angelus bell oer the Liffey swell rang out through the foggy dew.

Her eyes they shone like diamonds,


B7

youd think she was queen of the land


E

with her hair thrown over her shoulders,


B E

tied up with a black velvet band. As I went walking down Broadway; not intending to stay very long I met with a frolicsome damsel, as she came tripping along. A watch she pulled out of her pocket, and slipped it right into my hand. On the very first day that I met her, bad luck to the black velvet band. Before judge and jury next morning, both of us did appear,

Right proudly high over Dublin town they flung out the flag of war. Twas better to die neath an Irish sky than at Suvla or Sud el Bar. And from the plains of Royal Meath strong men came hurrying through; while Brittanias huns with their long range guns sailed in through the foggy dew. Oh, the night fell black and the rifles crack made Perfidious Abion reel. Mid the leaden rail, seven tongues of flame did shine oer the lines of steel. By each shining blade, a prayer was said that to Ireland her sons be true. And when morning broke still the war flag shook out its fold in the foggy dew. 175

Twas England bade our Wild Gees go that small nations might be free. But their lonely graves are by Suvlas waves on the fringe of the Great North Sea. Oh, had they died by Pearses side or had fought with Cathal Brugha. Their names wed keep where the Fenians sleep, neath the shroud of the foggy dew. But the bravest fell, and the requiem bell rang mournfully and clear, for those who died that Eastertide in the springtime of the year; while the world did gaze in deep amaze at those fearless men, but few, who bore the fight that freedoms light might shine through the foggy dew. And back to the glen I rode again and my heart with grief was sore, for I parted then with valiant men whom I never shall see more. But to and fro in my dreams I go, and Id kneel and pray for you, for slavery fled, oh glorious dead, when you fell in the foggy dew.

And now the storm is over, and we are safe on shore and well go into a public house to the girls we do adore and well drink strong ale and porter and well make the rafters roar.

The Town I Loved so Well


G C G G Am G C D D C G

In my memory I will always see, the town that I loved so well where our school played ball by the gasyard wall
C Em C C G C G D G Am 7 D D G C D G G D G

and we laughed through the smoke and smell. Going home in the rain running up the dark lane past the jail and down behind the fountain. Those were happy days in so many ways in the town I loved so well. In the early morning the shirt factory horn called women from Creggan, The Moor and The Bog, while the men on the dole played a mothers role, fed the children and then walked the dog. And when times got tough there was just about enough, but they saw it through without complaining, for deep inside was a burning pride for the town I loved so well. In my memory There was music there in the Derry air like a language that we all could understand. I remember the day that I earned my first pay when I played in a small pick up band. There I spent my youth and to tell the truth I was sad to leave it all behind me, for Id learned about life and Id found a wife in the town I loved so well. In my memory But when Ive returned how my eyes have burned to see how a town could be brought to its knees

by the armoured cars and the bombed out bars and the gas that hangs on to every breeze. Now the armys installed by that old gas yard wall and the damned barbed wire gets higher and higher with their tanks and their guns oh my God what have they done to the town I loved so well. In my memory Now the musics gone but they carry on, for their spirits been bruised never broken. They will not forget but their hearts are set on tomorrow and peace once again; for whats done is done and whats lost is lost and gone forever. I can only pray for a bright grand new day in the town I love so well. The Wild Rover (b 250)

O lux beatissima, reple cordis intima tuorum fidelium. 6. Sine tuo numine, nihil est in homine, nihil est innoxium. 7. Lava quod est sordidum, riga quod est aridum, sana quod est saucium. 8. Flecte quod est rigidum, fove quod est frigidum, rege quod est devium. 9. Da tuis fidelibus in te confidentibus, sacrum septenarium. 10. Da virtutis meritum, da salutis exitum, da perenne gaudium. Amen. Adoro te devote Thomas Aquinas (b 18) 1st q: C 1. Adoro te devote, latens Deitas, quae sub his figuris vere latitas: tibi se cor meum totum subiicit, quia te contemplans totum deficit. 2. Visus, tactus, gustus in te fallitur, sed auditu solo tuto creditur. credo quidquid dixit Dei Filius: nil hoc verbo Veritatis verius.

3. In cruce latebat sola Deitas, at hic latet simul et humanitas; ambo tamen credens atque confitens, peto quod petivit latro paenitens. 4. Plagas, sicut Thomas, non intueor; Deum tamen meum te confiteor. Fac me tibi semper magis credere, in te spem habere, te diligere. 5. O memoriale mortis Domini! Panis vivus, vitam praestans homini!

Lauda Sion Salvatorem Thomas Aquinas (cf. b 34 [46, 1011, 15, 20, 2223]) 1st q: D Lauda Sion Salvatorem, lauda ducem et pastorem, in hymnis et canticis.

1. Quantum potes, tantum aude: quia maior omni laude, nec laudare sufficis. 2. Laudis thema specialis, panis vivus et vitalis hodie proponitur. 3. Quem in sacrae mensae coenae, turbae fratrum duodenae datum non ambigitur. 4. Sit laus plena, sit sonora, sit iucunda, sit decora mentis iubilatio. 5. Dies enim solemnis agitur, in qua mensae prima recolitur huius institutio. 6. In hac mensa novi Regis, novum Pascha novae legis, phase vetus terminat. 7. Vetustatem novitas, umbram fugat veritas, noctem lux eliminat. 8. Quod in coena Christus gessit, faciendum hoc expressit in sui memoriam. 9. Docti sacris institutis, panem, vinum in salutis consecramus hostiam. 10. Dogma datur christianis, quod in carnem transit panis, et vinum in sanguinem. 11. Quod non capis, quod non vides, animosa firmat fides, praeter rerum ordinem. 12. Sub diversis speciebus, signis tantum, et non rebus, latent res eximiae. 13. Caro cibus, sanguis potus: manet tamen Christus totus 191

sub utraque specie. 14. A sumente non concisus, non confractus, non divisus: integer accipitur. 15. Sumit unus, sumunt mille: quantum isti, tantum ille: nec sumptus consumitur. 16. Sumunt boni, sumunt mali: sorte tamen inaequali, vitae vel interitus. 17. Mors est malis, vita bonis: vide paris sumptionis quam sit dispar exitus. 18. Fracto demum sacramento, ne vacilles, sed memento tantum esse sub fragmento, quantum tot tegitur. 19. Nulla rei fit scissura: signi tantum fit fractura, qua nec status, nec statura signati minuitur. 20. Ecce Panis Angelorum, factus cibus viatorum: vere panis filiorum, non mittendus canibus. 21. In figuris praesignatur, cum Isaac immolatur, agnus Paschae deputatur, datur manna patribus. 22. Bone pastor, panis vere, Jesu, nostri miserere: tu nos pasce, nos tuere, tu nos bona fac videre in terra viventium. 23. Tu qui cuncta scis et vales, qui nos pascis hic mortales: tuos ibi commensales, coheredes et sodales fac sanctorum civium. Amen. 192

Pange lingua gloriosi Thomas Aquinas (b 58 [56]) 1st q: E 1. Pange lingua gloriosi corporis mysterium, sanguinisque pretiosi, quem in mundi pretium fructus ventris generosi rex effudit gentium. 2. Nobis datus, nobis natus ex intacta Virgine, et in mundo conversatus, sparso verbi semine, sui moras incolatus miro clausit ordine. 3. In suprema nocte coenae recumbus cum fratribus observata lege plene cibis in legalibus, cibum turbae duodenae se dat suis manibus. 4. Verbum caro, panem verum Verbo carnem efficit: fitque sanguis Christi merum, et si sensus deficit, ad firmandum cor sincerum sola fides sufficit. 5. Tantum ergo Sacramentum veneremur cernui: et antiquum documentum novo cedat ritui: praestet fides supplementum sensuum defectui. 6. Genitori, Genitoque laus et iubilatio, salus, honor, virtus quoque sit et benedictio: Procedenti ab utroque compar sit laudatio. Amen.

Aeterne rerum conditor (Ad galli cantum) Saint Ambrose (b 15) 1st q: G 1. Aeterne rerum conditor, noctem diemque qui regis, et temporum das tempora ut alleves fastidium. 2. Praeco diei iam sonat, noctis profundae pervigil, nocturna lux viantibus a nocte noctem segregans. 3. Hoc excitatus lucifer solvit polum caligine; hoc omnis erronum chorus vias nocendi deserit. 4. Hoc nauta vires colligit pontique mitescunt freta; hoc, ipse Petra Ecclesiae, canente, culpam diluit. 5. Surgamus ergo strenue: gallus iacentes excitat et somnolentes increpat, gallus negantes arguit. 6. Gallo canente spes redit, aegris salus refunditur, mucro latronis conditur, lapsis fides revertitur. 7. Jesu, labantes respice et nos videndo corrige; si respicis, lapsus cadunt fletuque culpa solvitur. 8. Tu, lux, refulge sensibus mentisque somnum discute, te nostra vox primum sonet et vota solvamus tibi.

Pater mi (b 46) Pater mi praecor te: ut tu vis fac de me. Miser sum, Deus scis, salvum fac sicut vis. Nemo tunc nocet me, cum ex corde credo te. Virtus mea fugit me: salus mea apud te. Caecus sum quaero te, lapsus sum leva me. Manus tua fecit me: nullum praecor praeter te. Pater mi praecor te, ut tu vis fac de me. Nihil sum sine te: ut tu vis fac de me. Jesu dulcis memoria Gregorian Hymn (b 33; translation p. 299) 1st q: A Hymn of Evening Prayer (Thursdays) 1. Jesu dulcis memoria, dans vera cordis gaudia sed super mel et omnia eius dulcis praesentia. 2. Nil canitur suavius, nil auditur iucundius, nil cogitatur dulcius, quam Jesus Dei Filius. 3. Jesu spes paenitentibus, quam pius es petentibus! Quam bonus te quaerentibus! Sed quid invenientibus? 4. Nec lingua valet dicere, nec littera exprimere: expertus potest credere, quid sit Jesum diligere. 5. Sis Jesu nostrum gaudium, qui es futurum praemium: sit nostra in te gloria, per cuncta semper saecula. Amen.

Christe cunctorum (b 25) 1. Christe, cunctorum dominator alme, mente Supremi generate Patris, supplicum voces pariterque carmen cerne benignus. 2. Cerne, quod Templi, Deus, ad decorem plebs Tua supplex resonet per Aedem, annuo cuius redeunt colenda tempore festa. 3. Haec Domus surgit tibi dedicata rito, ubi sumit populus sacratum corpus ex aris, bibit et beati sanguinis haustum. 4. Hic sacrosancti latices nocentum, diluunt culpas, perimuntque noxas: chrismate invictum genus et creatur christicolarum. 5. Hic salus aegris, medicina fessis, lumen et caecis datur: hic reatu, Christe, nos solvis; timor atque moeror pellitur omnis. 6. Daemonis saevi perit hic rapina: pervicax monstrum pavet, et retentos deserens artus, fugit in remotas ocyus auras. 7. Hic locus Regis vocitatur aula nempe caelestis, rutilansque caeli porta, quae vitae patriam petentes accipit omnes. 8. Turbo quem nullus quatit, aut vagantes diruunt venti, penetrantque nimbi, hanc domum tetris piceus tenebris tartarus horret. 9. Ergo te votis petimus sereno annuas vultu; famulos gubernes, qui tui summo celebrant amore gaudia templi.

10. Nulla nos vitae cruciet procella: sint dies laeti placidaeque noctes nullus ex nobis, pereunte mundo, sentiat ignem. 11.

Laus poli summum resonet Parentem laus, Patris Natum pariterque Sanctum Spiritum dulci moduletur hymno omne per aevum. Amen. Dulcis Christe M. Grancini (16051669) (b 30; translation p. 295) Dulcis Christe, o bone Deus, o amor meus, o vita mea, o salus mea, o gloria mea. Tu es Creator, tu es Salvator mundi.

Congregavit nos in unum Christi amor, exultemus, et in ipso iucundemur! Timeamus, et amemus Deum vivum. Et ex corde diligamus nos sincero. Ubi caritas Simul ergo cum in unum congregamur ne nos mente dividamur caveamus; cessent iurgia maligna, cessent lites et in medio nostri sit Christus Deus. Ubi caritas

Ave generosa Hildegard of Bingen (b 21) Ave, generosa, gloriosa et intacta puella, tu pupilla castitatis, tu materia sanctitatis, quae Deo placuit. Nam haec superna infusio in te fuit, quod supernum verbum in te carnem induit. Tu candidum lilium, quod Deus ante omnem creaturam inspexit. O pulcherrima et dulcissima; quam valde Deus in te delectabatur! Cum amplexione caloris sui in te posuit ita quod filius eius de te lactatus est. Venter enim tuus gaudium habuit, cum omnis caelestis symphonia de te sonuit. Quia, virgo, filium Dei portasti ubi castitas tua in Deo claruit. Viscera tua gaudium habuerunt, sicut gramen super quod ros cadit cum ei viriditatem infundit; ut et in te factum est, o mater omnis gaudii. Nunc omnis Ecclesia in gaudio rutilet ac in symphonia sonet propter dulcissimam virginem 195

et laudabilem Mariam Dei genitricem. Amen. Ave maris stella (b 23) Hymn of Evening Prayer (Saturdays) 1. Ave, maris stella, Dei mater alma atque semper virgo, felix caeli porta. 2.

Monstra te esse matrem, sumat per te precem qui, pro nobis natus, tulit esse tuus. 5. Virgo singularis, inter omnes mitis, nos, culpis solutos, mites fac et castos. 6. Vitam praesta puram, iter para tutum, ut videntes Jesum, semper collaetemur. 7. Sit laus Deo Patri, summo Christo decus, Spiritui Sancto honor, tribus unus. Amen.

Te voglio bene assaie Potenza della lirica dove ogni dramma un falso: che con un po di trucco e con la mimica puoi diventare un altro.

Ti volti e vedi la tua vita come la scia di unelica. Ma s, la vita che finisce, ma lui non ci pens poi tanto. Anzi, si sentiva gi felice e ricominci il suo canto.

Y quiero ver el sol que alumbre una vez mas, el destino del hombre es un largo caminar. Ahora es tiempo, siempre es tiempo de empezar una vez mas, de asumir todos lo riesgos, de vivir con libertad.

El mar Clara Fontana / Rafael Andreo 1999 Cuando nace el ro entre el valle y la montaa el tenue sonido del agua que brota dice ya: el mar, el mar. Al bajar con fuerza Ro joven por las rocas en tu blanca espuma un grito incansable: Dnde est! El mar, el mar. Perdido en la llanura busco donde descansar tu rostro amigo despierta un deseo casi dormido: el mar, el mar. Cual gaviota blanca volando sin freno la estela de tus alas sostenga mi vuelo. Al fin de la vida cumplido el camino de tu mano, amigo, Arribe a la mar.

De una sola pa labra todo y todo dice una sola pa labra. Ya no hay cosa que nos sea extraa, se nos ha dado todo conocer. Ya ni el tiempo tiene su momento ni el espacio sus cosas de paso. En El todo tiene un solo centro, en El vivimos y nos movemos.

Gracias a la vida, que me ha dado tanto, me ha dado el odo, que en todo su ancho, graba noche y das, grillos y canarios; martillos, turbinas, ladridos, chubascos; y la voz tan tierna de mi bien amado. Gracias a la vida, que me ha dado tanto, me ha dado la marcha de mis pies cansados; con ellos anduve ciudades y charcos, playas y desiertos; montaas y llanos. Y la casa tuya, tu calle y tu patio. Gracias a la vida, que me ha dado tanto, me dio el corazn que agita su marco, cuando miro el fruto del cerebro humano; cuando miro al bueno tan lejos del malo; cuando miro el fondo de tus ojos claros. Gracias a la vida, que me ha dado tanto, me ha dado la risa y me ha dado el llanto, as yo distingo dicha de quebranto;

und aus den Wiesen stei get der weie Nebel wunder bar. Wie ist die Welt so stille und in der Dmmrung Hlle so traulich und so hold als eine stille Kammer, wo ihr des Tages Jammer verschlafen und vergessen sollt. Seht ihr den Mond dort stehen? Er ist nur halb zu sehen und ist doch rund und schn. So sind wohl manche Sachen, die wir getrost belachen, weil unsere Augen sie nicht sehn. Wir stolzen Menschenkinder sind eitel arme Snder und wissen gar nicht viel. Wir spinnen Luftgespinste und suchen viele Knste und kommen weiter von dem Ziel. Gott, la dein Heil uns schauen, auf nichts Vergnglichs trauen, nicht Eitelkeit uns freun. La uns einfltig werden und vor dir hier auf Erden wie Kinder fromm und frhlich sein. So legt euch denn, ihr Brder, in Gottes Namen nieder; kalt ist der Abendhauch. Verschon uns, Gott mit Strafen und la uns ruhig schlafen, und unsren kranken Nachbarn auch! Heidenrslein

TRANSLATIONS
Abraham (p. 260) Ref. Abraham, you must go, / leave these people alone, / take your stick and then go / leave your home. / Abraham, you must go, / leave these dead alone, / take the Gospel into your hand / and leave your home. 1. Go into the desert / to look for the light / which is in God. 2. Go, do not turn back / walk until daybreak, / hold Gods hand. 3. Then you will see / golden seeds shine / in the summer sky. Adis con el corazn (p. 266) 1. Farewell with my heart / because I cannot say it with my soul. / Saying goodbye to you / I am dying. 2. You will be the goodness of my soul / you will be the goodness of my life. / You will be the proud bird / who sings happily in the morning. Al mattino (p. 204) 1. In the morning, Lord, / my amphora is empty at the source, / and in the vibrant, clear air / I know that you can make me great, Lord. 2. And the hours of the day, / in the morning are the tender clay of Your glory, / Lord. I have but one desire / to see You and that is the morning. Apparir (p. 206) Ref. The Lord of all mankind / will appear in all his splendor; / there is the dawn that you are waiting for, / you who are in the darkness; / He is like a child / in the desolate town, / He is the God of every goodness. 1. He gave Israel, who escaped from evil, / the law in the desert; / but Israel was still too much a child / to remain faithful to his love. / He put Aaron, / as a font of eternal forgiveness, / besides Moses who, solitary and faithful, / transformed the rock into water. 2. But Israel, after receiving the law, / asked the Lord for a king, / because the people were still like children / and couldnt give themselves order. / So they had David the valiant, / the splendor of Solomon, / and then all the kings who betrayed / Yahwehs ancient covenant. 3. By the waters of Babylon / a people cries / from spring until autumn / about their years of sorrow. / There are no songs, no feasts, / because there is no prophet / to bring a new hope / to see Sion again. Ave Maria, Splendore del Mattino (p. 207) 1. Hail Mary, splendor of the morning, / your gaze is pure and your heart is humble. / May the tenderness of your true love protect your people on their path. Ref. Mother, I am not worthy to look at you, / but let me hear your voice. / Allow me to bring your peace to all, / so that they may know and love you. 2. Mother, you who run to the aid of your children, / may you allow no one to stray, / sustain his cross and his path, / may he always walk among us. Ave Regina caelorum (p. 196) Hail, queen of heaven, / hail, Mistress of angels, / Hail, holy root / from whom the light of the world came. / Rejoice, glorious virgin / sublime in your beauty. / Hail, wonderful Virgen / and pray Christ the Lord for us. Balada de caridade (p. 286) 1. For me rain on my head is a lullaby, / but for my poor brother, the cold rain / penetrates in his house and forms mud on the floor. Ref. How can I be happy / if I have closed my heart / to my poor brother / and refused him my love. 2. For me the wind that blows is a melody. / But my poor brother hears the wind, anguished, / because the wind, this wicked one, destroys his hut. 3. How can I sleep peacefully if in the day that passed / I have stayed with my arms folded? Ballata del potere (p. 208) 1. I used to say it all day long, / This world isnt fair! / Even at night, I thought, / This life is flat. / And I used to say, / You damned bourgeois. Its your fault / the fault of the bosses, / and were just poor little nothings. / And the rest of us, / always there in our factories / with no time to think / from morning till night. Ref. Lets go comrades, lets turn everything upside down / and build a world thats less ugly. 2. To have a world thats less ugly, / how many days, how

293

many months, / in order to throw / the bourgeois corpses into ruin! / But the comrades were strong, / and they took power. / My friends were dead, / and I saw them fall. Ref. Now tell me how a man / who has everything but forgiveness can hope? 3. How can a man hope / when blood has already been shed, / when hate has triumphed / anew all over the world? / We need Someone / who will free us from evil, / because the whole world / has remained exactly the same. Ballata dellamore vero (p. 209) I would like to love you / as God loves you, / with the same passion, / with the same strength, / with the same fidelity that I do not have. 1. While my love / is small like a child, / alone without his mother, / lost in a garden. I would like to love you / as God loves you, / with the same tenderness, / with the same faith, / with the same freedom that I do not have. 2. While my love / is fragile like a flower: / it thirsts for rain / and dies without sun. I love you / and for it I thank God, / who gives me the tenderness, / who gives me the strength, / who gives me the freedom that I do not have. Ballata della societ (Lopera) (p. 210) 1. Blessed be the clever, blessed be the rich / blessed be the people with loaded purses / blessed be the strong and the violent / blessed be the powerful. 2. Blessed be those who on this earth / always play ring around the rosy / blessed be those who on this earth / always win their wars. 3. But the bitterness, the bitterness, in me / will be changed into happiness. 4. That day we will have a great feast / and then well sing all together / It will be a beautiful day of a great feast / and then we will all dance together. Cambiar al hombre (p. 267) Ref. Lets change man, / give meaning to life, / recognize in ourselves / a history and a destiny, / take the risk / of being new men. 1. Its an inevitable encounter / that no one can escape, / its the answer to the questions / of those who are searching, / its the deepest sense / of all reality. / Listen, you who want to, / everything cries out the truth. 2. God shows Himself in the world / through daily things, / we penetrate the

Mystery / through the yearning of our search / and through our compromises / with created reality. / Give this path time, / because waiting is not standing still. 3. In the world, the simplehearted / are the truest signs / of this deep reality / which brings you new birth. / Emptiness is overcome / and fear is won over by risking. / God gives Himself to us / and changes us from within. Cantico dei redenti (p. 210) Ref. The Lord is my salvation / and with him I no longer fear, / because I have certainty in my heart; / salvation is here with me. 1. I praise you, Lord, / because once you were far from me / now you have come back / and have taken me with you. 2. You will drink with joy at the fountains, / at the fountains of salvation / and on that day you will say: / Praise the Lord, invoke his name. 3. Let all the people know / everything he has done / and may they remember forever, / remember always that his name is great. 4. Sing to him who has done great things / and let the world know it; / shout loudly your joy, / inhabitant of Zion, because great with you is the Lord. Canzone degli occhi e del cuore (p. 211) 1. Even if one day, my friend, / I should forget the words / Forget the time and place, / Whether it was night or day, / I will never be able to forget / What your eyes spoke. Ref. And thus, flying, flying, / even a tiny heart went away, / crossing the sky towards the great heart, / a tiny and petty heart / like an unwelcoming village, / was flying straight up towards its destiny; / and no one was able to stop it, / not even the balance sheets of life, / those inventories that are always taken without love. 2. Thus I spoke in a hurry / not to leave anything behind / not to leave evil behind / and the workings of the mind; / and your eyes told me / that I had already been forgiven. 3. And now go back to the one who knows, / to the one who shares everything with you, / who gives your children a hearty embrace, / and do not hide your face, / since from your eyes one understands / when life begins again.

294

Canzone di Maria Chiara (p. 211) 1. My door will be closed / to the rich and the strong, / to all those who didnt love, / to those who played with death. 2. To those who were well-off, / to those who seek their own glory, / to those who didnt love, / and to those who became famous. Ref. If you dont become like little children, youll never enter. 3. Theres no place for one / who wont sell his house / to buy the field / where Ive hidden my treasure. 4. But for all the hungry, / those who thirst for justice, / Ive flung open wide my doors; / Ive prepared my joy. 5. For those who were persecuted, / for those who cried during the night, / for those who loved, / for those who offered their lives, / 6. my house will be open, / my table prepared. / My house open and table prepared for those who loved, / for those who offered their life. Chant de pnitence (p. 261) Ref. If you knew how much I love you, / you would return to me Jerusalem. / And the weight of your sins themselves / would bring you back. 1. We are no better than our fathers, / the children of Israel. / We are no better than our fathers / we are just the same. / Yes, we have sinned / and we have cheated. / We have ruined everything / and we have abandoned you. / We are no better than our fathers, / the children of Israel. 2. We are no better than St. Peter / when the cock crowed. / But St. Peter cried. / Yes, we have banished you / and betrayed you. / And we have been embarrassed / to be counted among your friends. / We are no better than St. Peter / when the cock crowed. 3. We are no better than the others, / despite our pretensions. / We are no better than the others, / even if we think we are. / Yet, when you wish, / a glimmer of fire / passes in our eyes / and its a radiant day. / We are then closer to the others, / despite our divisions. / And closer to the others / and we find you again. Come grande (p. 213) 1. How great is your goodness / prepared for those who fear you / You do great things for those who take refuge in you, / and great things for those who love only You! 2. Like a silent wind you picked us / from the mountains and the sea / you

How clear is the water at your spring / for the thirsty and the tired of searching: / certainly he found the signs of your love / which got lost in the hour of sorrow. 4. Like a flower born among the stones / will search the sky above / so also your Grace, your spirit for us / is born to see the world that You want. Como busca (p. 269) As the tender infant / tired and sad / looks for rest and comfort / in the arms of his mother, / so also, I, from the moment / the white light of dawn resplends, / come, O Lady, / in search of your heavenly protection. Cuando de mi Patrona (p. 269) 1. When I go to the sanctuary of Our Lady, / going uphill is like going downhill. / And when I go down, / it becomes an uphill climb. 2. I do not know what it is that Our Lady has, / I dont know what it is when she looks at me. / Her eyes are like stars. / Oh, may I always see myself in those eyes! Dulcis Christe (p. 195) 1. Sweet Jesus, good God, / my love, my life, / my salvation, my glory. 2. You are the creator, / you are the savior of the world. 3. I want you, I love you, / I adore you, o sweet love, / I adore you, o dear Jesus. El Seor es mi fuerza (p. 271) Ref. The Lord is my strength, / my rock, my salvation. 1. You lead me in the path of justice, / you teach me truth. / You give me courage for my struggles; / Ill forge on without fear. 2. You give light to the shadows of my life; / you give light to the world. / Even if I walk in the valley of shadows, / I will never fear. 3.

stealing money from the people. Ref. Zaccheus, come down, the Lord is waiting for you. / Zaccheus, come down, He is here. / Zaccheus, open your hose to him. 2. But one day he hears / that Jesus is about to go by, / and without saying anything / he climbs up a tree. / The tree cannot hide you, / because Jesus, coming forward, / invites himself to dinner. 3. And at the end of the feast / Jesus looked at him. / And he bending his head / got up to his feet. / Why do you bend down your head? / Jesus understood everything: / you will pay back all your debts / and all your thefts. 4.
